Senate reaches deal to end shutdown and avoid default
Wed Oct 16, 2013
Easy. The spending levels in the orignal continuing resolution were set at the levels that the congressional republicans wanted. The Democrats agreed to lower the spending in return for passing a clean continuing resolution. Republicans said okay, but then the House went back on the deal and refused …
$11 a month? Obamacare super-cheap for some, feds find
Tue Sep 24, 2013
I've lived in Canada for seven years now. Our healthcare isn't cheap; we pay for it through our taxes, which are a little bit higher than I paid in Wisconsin, but not terribly so. I don't have any problem getting into see my doctor. If I have a sinus infection, I call in the morning and can get in t …
Pa. judge hears arguments in landmark gay marriage case
Wed Sep 4, 2013
This country's citizens have a history of challenging unjust laws -- and rightly so.

Gov. Perry: Wendy Davis hasn't 'learned from her own example'
Thu Jun 27, 2013
"A woman typically has the right to not get pregnant in the first place. If they can't figure this much out, then maybe they should have all personal decisions made for them anyway." Really? Really?? (Let's leave the obvious "how about rape"? aside for the moment, and the really horrible condescendi …

You're right - obviously no woman would ever be forced to have sex against her will. Oh, wait...
'Gay-free' prom idea backfires on supporters in Indiana town
Mon Feb 11, 2013
Interesting logic. Does that mean we shouldn't allow hetrosexuals to get married? Because obviously, that implies "what they are (will be!) doing in private". Maybe if they get married secretly, don't wear any wedding rings, don't live together, etc., etc.. then they wouldn't be promoting it, by adv …
'She'll kick your butt': Experts say women fit to fight
Thu Jan 24, 2013
For combat assignments, my guess is that the requirements will need to be the same. As they should be -- if we women want equality, then the same standards need to apply. And for the record, there will be MANY women able to hit those requirements you mentioned. Just last summer my husband got his bu …
